Default Re: Think I got the build... want someone more experienced to look over

what about 64-bit.... i thought 32 was the way to go. can someone explain the difference?
32bit can only address up to 4GB system memory (that's including graphics memory)
64bit can make use of way more. It doesn't really have any kind of compatability issues any more so I'd recommend going with 64.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE @ 4.0GHz + TU120E lapped - MSI 770-CD45 AM3 - 2x2GB OCZ DDR3 1333MHz - Sapphire HD 4870 - Samsung Spinpoint 500GB 7200RPM 16MB cache HDD - Tagan TG600-BZ Piperock - (Currently open test bed) - Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit.

if you haven't ordered yet, you might want this PSU instead, 100 more watts (600) and four 12v rails instead of two (18a each), it's not modular though, but it's only $40 after MIR...

OCZ 600w
